Professional stream

It includes an industry internship (8-13 weeks over summer) working on real projects at an organisation of your choice, either in New Zealand or overseas. This is designed to kick-start your career by gaining hands-on experience, and help solidify your knowledge base.

It's possible to study the Professional stream completely online if you wish – ideal for people who are working full-time. All interactions with staff and students will take place online.

Research stream

Conduct in-depth research into a specialist area of digital business that you're truly passionate about.

This stream may be the best option for you if you're interested in further academic study, such as a PhD, or a possible future research career. You'll get to grips with the latest research and gain expertise in how digital technologies can be applied in a business context.

Students will also have opportunities to meet face-to-face with staff and other students at their nearest university every week, to facilitate group activities and support whakawhanaungatanga.

This will help you to build and connect with a large network of future Māori business leaders across the country.

The course content has evolved from consultation with iwi, hapū and whānau, government, senior Māori academics, and community and corporate leaders.

The Master of Business Administration (Otago MBA) degree is an intensive two phase programme. Phase One comprises nine months of on-campus study of core papers. This is followed by a highly flexible Phase Two of electives, international exchange or online distance learning, plus a business project. Phase Two can range between six to twelve months.

The programme takes on a strong global perspective. Together with the diversity of our classes and opportunities for international exchange to renowned universities worldwide, we prepare students for success in the highly competitive global economy. Our comprehensive MBA programme also goes well beyond the academic syllabus to include career development guidance, practical experience and networking activities.

Lecturers on the Otago MBA programme are drawn from three areas - the University, other reputable global business schools, and consultants or business practitioners. They are carefully selected for both academic excellence and strong practical experience in running successful businesses. The small class size ensures a large degree of personal mentoring and guidance from staff.

The style of learning is highly interactive, and participants learn as much from one another as from the course leader or facilitator. Students are assigned to teams, which reflect the diversity of professional and educational backgrounds, demographics and work style preferences. These teams work together on projects, presentations, and assignments to apply business knowledge learned in academic class in real live settings, as well as hone skills such as time management, conflict resolution and problem solving.

Information for New Applicants

The course commences each year in early April. Student applications are processed as they are received on a rolling basis, and we will endeavour to complete the application process within a month. As class size is small and seats are limited, applicants are advised to submit their application early to secure their place.

International students are reminded to allow sufficient time to make travel arrangements and visa application if required. Also, the full time Otago MBA requires a minimum Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score as part of the entry requirement and students need to plan for this if they have not already done so.

Structure of the Programme

The programme of study consists of compulsory papers from Phase 1 (the core) together with a choice of a business project, or a selection from a list of elective papers, or papers from an approved international exchange partner. The core papers, the business project, and the elective papers are set out in the MBA Schedule. Papers to be taken through international exchange must be approved by the Director of Executive Programmes in Business. One BMBA 500-level paper not listed in the schedule may be substituted for another BMBA 500-level paper, with the approval of the Director of Executive Programmes in Business.
A candidate must normally pass all papers from Phase 1 before proceeding to Phase 2.

Invest in your future

Companies today are facing major global challenges in areas such as health, sustainability, and environmental protection, provoking the need for solutions that combine technical skills and business acumen.

This programme is offered jointly by the University of Auckland’s Faculty of Engineering and Business School, ensuring that you’ll be exposed to experts from both fields.

Sometimes viewed as an MBA for engineers, the MEMgmt focuses on building specific abilities required for technology-driven organisations.

You'll be taught by top lecturers with international teaching experience. They are also sought-after business consultants and active researchers, with links to some of the world's leading companies.

The Master of Management Studies (MMS) is a highly regarded postgraduate management qualification for good recent graduates in any discipline. In the past, science graduates in biology, chemistry, computer science, technology, engineering, building science, geography, etc. have chosen the MMS as a way to gain managerial skills and knowledge that complements their scientific/technical training.

For students with a mathematical, quantitative or analytical background, a range of elective courses allow them to gain a greater understanding of managerial decision analysis skills, particularly qualitative methods.

Similarly, for Arts and Humanities graduates, the MMS provides a programme that can help them draw on their undergraduate background in combination with faculty members studying creative management, leadership, innovation and change.

The Victoria Management School also offers postgraduate courses in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations that may complement the MMS core or optional coursework.

Graduates of other degrees may also find the study of management at the postgraduate level an advantageous option for their career.

Programme Structure

The MMS programme consists of courses and research. It has a core of five courses that provide a foundation for students to build from when choosing elective courses. The foundation courses cover a variety of management research areas including organisation dynamics, strategic management, systems thinking, and managerial decision making.

A research methods course and a research paper complete the core. These courses prepare MMS students for undertaking some academic research which is a required element of the programme.

The remainder of the programme of courses and research projects can be tailored to your individual interests, with Part 1 requiring 3 additional courses selected from a wide range of existing management postgraduate courses or other Master's courses. The MMS is designed for flexibility so that students have the potential to theme their programme to match individual interests.
